Fantastic for families, large or small

These Ylläsrinne cabins are the ideal base for an Inghams Santa Break. The smaller chocolate-box cabins are perfect for small families whilst the bigger detached cabins are well suited to larger groups - so there'll be lots of opportunities for quality time and fun together. And when you're not out searching for Santa or exploring Lapland on one of our exciting excursions, you can look forward to getting back to your cabin to cosy up by the fire or relaxing in a sauna.

Specially selected cabins 

These cabins are full of charm and character,  furnished in a cosy Finnish style. The traditional Finnish cabins are dotted around the wintery woodland of the Arctic Circle. You'll get to experience the remote winter wonderland of Lapland first hand, whilst being within walking distance of the Ylläsrinne Hotel, the meeting point for your excursions and safaris.

Food and drink 

We've taken care of the dining arrangements, with breakfast and dinner included at the neighbouring Ylläsrinne Hotel. You can also choose to have lunch here as an optional add-on. Head to the dining room for a buffet of warm, hearty food to keep you going after days out in the snow exploring Finnish Lapland. 

Santa Breaks in Yllas

  • Located in the Arctic Circle 
  • Traditional Lappish cabins and cosy apartments
  • Pre-booked activities and excursions
  • 3 or 4 night holidays 

Ylläs is an idyllic unspoiled area of Lapland with marvellous scenery and high-quality cosy log cabins dotted around the woods. This resort really allows you to appreciate the true beauty of nature that Lapland has to offer - the skies here are especially clear, ideal for witnessing the magical Northern Lights and you may even spot wild reindeer roaming around. Our Ylläs Santa Break trips allow you to enjoy an unforgettable short break in December to get the whole family well and truly into the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas!

A true taste of the Arctic wilderness

Ylläs is situated in the western part of Lapland, approximately 150 kilometres above the Arctic Circle. It encompasses three villages, Äkäslompolo, Ylläsrinne and Ylläsjärvi, which are surrounded by pristine natural beauty. The landscape is dominated by vast forests, crystal-clear lakes, and rolling fells (their equivalent to mountains) making this resort a haven for nature lovers. The region also has a rich indigenous Samí heritage, and you'll have the chance to learn about Samí culture, traditions, and history during your stay.

Meet Santa

All of our three and four night Santa Breaks include a visit to Santa's Elves Hideaway, which is a short drive from resort. Santa's Elves Hideaway is tucked away in a whimsical, snow-covered forest, adorned with twinkling candlelight. It's a magical place where the whole family can immerse themselves in an enchanting atmosphere. Join the fun at one of Santa's magical workshops and make delicious gingerbread with Santa's friendly elves, meet Santa's reindeer and even attend Elf school, where you'll learn the secrets of Santa's Elves. There will also be plenty of exciting snow games for you to enjoy including tobogganing. The highlight of the day is meeting Santa in his cosy grotto - each family will have a private meeting with Santa and children will receive a present during the visit.

Arctic Activities 

Your Lapland holiday wouldn't be complete without some exciting winter excursions. We have a range of activities available to pre-book which allow you to engage in the unique Lappish culture and traditions of the region. You can race across frozen lakes and snowy landscapes on a husky sleigh ride, cosy up under a blanket and enjoy a reindeer sleigh ride through the scenic forests or whiz your way through the fells on an exhilarating snowmobile safari. Aspiring skiers and boarders are also in luck as you can add on a 'Ski Taster' package on our four night stays, which include lift passes, equipment and lessons. Ylläs is a great ski resort offering pistes for all abilities, with some fantastic beginner slopes, small classes and friendly English-speaking ski instructors. 

What's included in an Inghams Santa Break to Ylläs 

On an Ingham's Santa Breaks holiday you'll have your flights, transfers and accommodation, a farewell feast and a visit to Santa's Elves Hideaway including private meeting with Santa, included within your package. All you'll need to do is decide which arctic activities you want to add on and there are plenty of options. We also include arctic thermal suits and warm snow boots for all adults and children (3 years and over - as these breaks are not recommended for infants), meaning you can 'come as you are' with your normal winter outdoor clothing, and we'll do the rest, so you can relax and enjoy snowy Lapland. Our Inghams representatives based in Ylläs are also on hand to ensure you make the most of your Lapland holiday - if you need any advice, tips or assistance while you're away, they're more than happy help. 

Where to stay in Ylläs

Ylläs is centred around a large fell and we have accommodation situated on both sides. The main village is Äkäslompolo where you will find the majority of our accommodation including log cabins like the Villa Armas Cabins and Ylläs Log Cabins, as well as cosy apartments like our Akäs Apartments. Throughout Äkäslompolo there are also a handful of shops, colourful local bars, restaurants and an excellent, large supermarket.

If you'd prefer to head further into the remote Lappish wilderness, we'd recommend staying in one of our Ylläsrinne cabins which are located in the area of Ylläsrinne, on the other side of the fell to Äkäslompolo. These cabins are traditional Finnish log cabins and offer unspoiled natural scenery that'll allow you to really experience a winter wonderland like no other.
